After a year of increasing tensions over North Korean weapons’ tests and provocations, we have entered a period of summit diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula. In recent weeks, Kim Jong-un made his first visit to China to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and he is expected to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on April 27 and U.S. President Donald Trump in late May or early June. The shift to summit diplomacy has also created a parallel track of potential summits, such as the April 17-18 U.S.-Japan summit, for the U.S. and its allies to coordinate policy towards North Korea.
Please join KEI and Sasakawa USA for a discussion of the results of the recent inter-Korean summit, the implications of the North Korea-China summit, the role of the U.S.-Japan summit, the prospects for the upcoming historic summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, and how all of these summits potentially fit together.
